Things We Saw Today: How We’re Celebrating the Venture Bros. 5th Season

Things We Saw Today

Because what better way to show a superscientist you care than to get matching speedsuits? In case you thought we might have some news on the upcoming fifth season of The Venture Bros., we apologize if you were misled. But we had to post this. It’s practically an advertisement for the show. (via Retronaut)

If you have been waiting for someone to make a life-sized Portal gun just for you because you have $208 lying around, today is your lucky day! Prop and toymaker Neca is now selling an accurate replica of the video game gun, but it probably does not create portals. (via Kotaku)

  • Guess what? Presidential candidate and Davey and Goliath cosplayer Rick Santorum said another stupid thing about women! This time, women in combat: “I want to create every opportunity for women to be able to serve this country … but I do have concerns about women in front-line combat. I think that could be a very compromising situation, where people naturally may do things that may not be in the interest of the mission because of other types of emotions that are involved. It already happens, of course, with the camaraderie of men in combat, but I think it would be even more unique if women were in combat.” Yup. Emotions. Hey guys, just to refresh your memory, you should Google “Santorum” and see what it says. (via The Jane Dough)
  • A stay-at-home dad talks about how annoying it is that while his children’s actual parent, he is still not considered the “primary arrangement” for his kids’ caretaking duties. Nope, dad’s just a “babysitter.” (via Geek Dad)
  • Um, some new pictures from the set of Disney‘s John Carter are out, and I had no idea they were including Slimer in this movie, let alone re-imagining him in this way. (via Comic Book Resources)

  • The trailer for Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2 will run before The Hunger Games when it opens next month. And we will continue to imagine what a Katniss Everdeen vs. Bella Swan Celebtiry Deathmatch battle would be like. (Besides incredibly short.) (via Deadline)
  • If you’re in the Vancouver area, we are jealous of you, because there is a geek-friendly burlesque show happening there called nerdlesque, which is exactly what it sounds like. Burlesque dancers, performing shows, using themes of fantastic geekery. (via The Tyee)

  • The good news: The New York Times wants to print editorial cartoons again! More good news: They’re pursuing some of the country’s top cartoonists to take on the task! The bad news: The submission process involves the most established, professional cartoonists working on spec for a grand total of $250 — if they’re chosen at all. As you can imagine, these cartoonists were not feeling that deal. (via The Cagle Post)
  • Set phasers to wibbly-wobbly: IDW might be announcing a Star Trek/Doctor Who crossover comic. Do I have to say it? I’ll say it: Make it so! (via Blastr)
